salaam aleikom brothers, a salafi brother which i had a debate with, is interested in becoming a follower of traditional islam, but he keeps on asking me about ibn arabi, and he has problems for now to accept sunnipaht's stance on ibn arabi, he says ibn arabi has some very strange things like:
he told me this stamement was not correct, he refered to:
The consolation of Pharaoh was with the belief gave him when he was drowning. So took him pure and purified. There was no impurity in him since He took him in his belief before he had acquired any wrong actions. Islam effaces what was before it. He made him a sign of His concern so that none might despair of the mercy of ,
for "no one despairs of solace from except for the unbelievers." If Pharaoh been of those who despair, he would not have embarked on belief.
''The consolation of Pharaoh was with the belief Allah gave him when he was drowning. So took him pure and purified'
soerah 11:97 and soerah 11:98 , he sayd pharoah wasnt muslim, he died als kafir.
so whats your opinion brothers and sisters about ibn arabi's statement about pharao, what did scholars say about it, i stay neutral for now, i don't know the meaning of ibn arabi's words.
